INEC declares PDP’s Fintiri winner of Adamawa poll

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Governor Ahmadu Fintiri winner of the governorship election in Adamawa State.

The final results were announced by the INEC Returning Officer in the state, Mohammed Mele.

Mele said the PDP governorship candidate has met the constitutional requirement and thereby returned as governor of the state.

Fintiri won the supplementary election with the total votes of 9,337 to defeat his closest rival, Aisha Dahiru, popularly called Binani, who came second in the poll with a total of 6,513 votes.

Fintiri and Dahiru are the major contenders in the governorship poll.

The supplementary poll was held in 69 polling units in the 20 local governments in the state, with less than 40,000 eligible voters.

At the 18 March governorship poll before it was declared inconclusive, Fintiri was leading with over 30,000 votes.

For both the main election and the rerun, the governor polled a total of 430,861 votes while the APC candidate scored 398,788 votes.
